Trump and the Viceroys take off. "You have got to be kidding," Sandy giggles to her team. Kelly tells us that he has a "ringer" on his team, because this is Sandy's business. Apex looks, in the post-reveal moments, just as unhappy as Mosaic looks happy. Chris interviews all about Sandy's "huge advantage" coming from the industry at issue, and how this makes his team the little underdogs angling for the big victory. They're like the Mighty Ducks of bridal boutique ownership, only without Emilio Estevez, and preferably with an older Joshua Jackson, since I always feel kinda skeevy when I can already see how cute he is in a movie made when he was, like, twelve. (I know, I know, keep your Miss Alli LeTourneau jokes to yourselves.)
Apex arrives at its location, and Ivana explains that this was their first order of business after being told what the task was. As they go inside, she marvels at the size of the space. "We could tooootally do something with this," she coos. Chris says that he wants to just pack the space with vendors the next day, and he plans to offer to split the profits with the vendors. As he explains it to the team, he'll just offer the vendors a situation where for no rent or anything up front, they can come and sell their dresses. Jen nods thoughtfully, like this is totally brilliant. Kevin points out that they'll need the vendors, then, before they do anything else. Why any of them believe that vendors will eagerly go in on a deal to give away half of their profits in return for an opportunity to sell dresses in a large, unfurnished warehouse space run by unknowns is kind of a mystery to me, but...whatever.
Back at S5, Mosaic is hard at work around the table listening to Sandy tell them exactly what they need to do. She says that they need to go around to these various salons and try to negotiate what dresses they're going to have to sell. Kelly adds that they'll need "a marketing message." Yeah, thanks, G.I. Joe. Kelly clues us in that the team is broken into two groups -- he, Sandy, and Andy are going to go look at the space, while Maria and Wes are going to work on the marketing. They'll need a message! What will they do without a message! I hate business-speak. Sandy, meanwhile, tells Wes and Maria to get in touch with someone at theknot.com, which should have a list of all the New York City brides, and can probably sell the right to send a giant spam to all of them. Andy points out quite correctly that Kelly's role here was to delegate everything important to Sandy and then "ride Sandy to his exemption." Heh, "ride Sandy." Ew. Wes and Kelly, meanwhile, chuckle over the idea of Chris trying to figure out how to sell wedding dresses.
